Earlier this week the Kalamazoo Public Library uploaded "Kalamazoo 1884: A film about Kalamazoo, Michigan by John Urschel.

It's a slow starter.  But stick with it.  The pictures of Kalamazoo from the 1800's are well worth it.

I also enjoyed pictures and stories about what happened around the nation the year Kalamazoo was born, 1884.

Do you have any old school pics of Kalamazoo or other Southwest Michigan communities?  Please share them with us in the comments of this facebook post!
